At UGO we combine life changing volunteer experiences with life coaching for people who want to find clarity, more meaning, or a sense of purpose. This is anything but a traditional volunteer abroad trip. With pre trip, on trip and post trip programming, we zero in on what makes you tick or what is getting in your way, so you can get more from your life, all while connecting with and helping others.

To go or not to go: This is why

This week I caught up with the amazing Majet Reyes, a participant in our trip to Nepal last year where we ran workshops educating women farmers on various topics including organic farming practices, healthy relationships, and women’s health and nutrition.

As a mother of a young daughter and an entrepreneur, it was a hard decision to travel abroad for two weeks but the trip was life changing and in this interview Majet shares how the Nepal experience transformed her and why she would highly recommend a volunteer trip abroad with UGO Travel for Change. Majet is a great example of the kind of heart-centred person you meet on our trips who becomes life-long friends.
